CHURCHES: IT’S TIME TO STEP UP
Discussed by Robyn Chambers
with Be A Voice (www.BeAVoice.net)


Part 1 of 2

Too often, the church shoots the wounded who walk through the front door.

Robyn Chambers is the Executive Director of Focus on the Family’s Advocacy for Children program. Today, Robyn discusses the unique opportunity churches and Christians have to help and support pregnant women and their babies.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Do women with unexpected pregnancies often not know where to turn – thinking they will be judged from a church?

Why are so many pastors afraid to preach about abortion from the pulpit? Robyn explains that many pastors she talks with worry about offending women who have had an abortion or making them feel guilty. Her response to this fear is: “There is nothing you can say that adds any more shame or quilt than they’ve already put on themselves. Talking about it, means…this church is a safe place.”

Does the church have a powerful opportunity to not just save a baby physically, but the mother eternally?

Where do scared young girls and women turn, if not the church?



PART 2 OF 2 - CHURCHES: IT’S TIME TO STEP UP
Discussed by Robyn Chambers
with Be A Voice (www.BeAVoice.net)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Are women in churches getting abortions?

Are there unwed pregnant women in churches?

Does every church have something they can offer pregnant women and their babies? Robyn shares her own personal story of being a pregnant teenager and how her small church helped her.

Do churches need special training to help pregnant women and their babies?

Is abortion strictly a political issue? Robyn reminds us that supporting an unwed pregnant woman is supporting her, not her sin. She also urges church members to encourage their pastor and other church leaders to begin a ministry for unwed pregnant mothers and not shy away from the topic.

Do we need a “Pro-Love Movement” in America?




WHAT IS A MOTHER?
Discussed by Sara Tracey
with The What's UP Radio Program

What is a Mother?
Written by Jor-El Godsey, President of Heartbeat International 

Two babies, yes, twins, a boy and a girl, were in the womb together having a conversation.

The girl asked her brother, “Do you believe in life after delivery?” Her brother said, “No way. What kind of life would that be?” She responded, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than in here. And maybe we’ll be able to walk with our legs, and use our hands to pick up things and eat using our mouth.

Her brother said, “Sis, that is crazy talk. Walking is impossible. Eating with your mouth? Ridiculous! Our umbilical cord gives us all the food we need!” She said, “Well, I think something different is coming...something better...something infinitely better.”

He shot back, “Have you ever met anyone who has gone through the delivery process and ever come back? After delivery, we’re done! We’re finished! This is all there is.” She pondered what he said, and said softly, “I think I’ll meet my mother, and she will take care of me and you.”

Again, perplexed, he said to his twin sister, “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s the craziest thing you ever have said! If Mother exists, where is she now?”

The sister responded: “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are a part of her. I hear her voice when she speaks to me. I feel her hands near me. I can hear her heartbeat.” “Well,” her brother exclaimed, “I don’t see her, so she must not exist.”

The sister replied, “My dearest brother, we can choose to fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. That is where I’m going to place my hope and trust. Mother is very much alive, and in the quiet of the night I hear her softly singing over you and me. She loves us and will take care of us.”



THE BATTLE BETWEEN TRUTH AND LIES
Discussed by Brad Mattes
with Life Issues Institute www.lifeissues.org

Misrepresentations, fabrications, or falsehoods continue to be a primary tool to advance abortion on demand until birth in America.

Brad Mattes, President of Life Issues, discusses some of these out-right lies repeated by abortion advocates.

Click here for the latest from Life Issues Institute.

Click here to read Brad’s op-ed on this important issue.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Before Roe v. Wade, did Dr. Bernard Nathanson and other abortion advocates build their cause on falsehoods, distortions, and out-right lies?

Do many abortion advocates repeat the falsehood: There is no consensus when human life begins? Brad calls these people “science deniers” and reveals more scientific facts about conception and embryos.

Do many abortion advocates repeat the falsehood: It’s just a mass of tissue, not a baby?

Recently, a Chief Justice for the South Carolina Supreme Court claimed babies don’t have a heartbeat at six weeks. Was he simply repeating a lie?

Are abortions safer than childbirth? Brad again discusses the true research and facts about this false claim.

Is reversing a chemical abortion pill procedure “junk science”? Brad reveals the success rate of reversing a chemical abortion.

If you have questions about a sermon, please contact Champion Forest at questions@cfbc.org

Questions/Issues Discussed:

AMOS 2:1-2
What is the purpose of these two verses?
Mark shares a story from his years at Lipscomb University about getting his degree in Biblical languages (Hebrew and Greek) and a class he took for his other degree to be able to preach. Listen as he talks about this class, Practical Aspects of Preaching, and what he learned about preaching at funerals and weddings.

Why should we honor all life? “How we speak [about] and treat the dead, is a statement of how we view the living,” Mark says. He also explains that we should be inspired and transformed when we show honor to others, which in turn honors God.


AMOS 2:4
Who were the people of Judah?
What did they do to invoke the wrath of God?
Did they mean to be “bad” people?
What is “confirmation bias”? Mark will continue to explain this tomorrow…
